Trust in God under Persecution
1 To him that excelleth. A Psalm of David on Michtam, concerning the dumb dove in a far country, when the Philistines took him in Gath. Be merciful unto me, O God; for man would swallow me up; he fighteth continually and vexeth me.
2 Mine enemies would daily swallow me up, for many fight against me, O thou most High.
3 When I was afraid, I trusted in thee.
4 I will rejoice in God, because of his word, I trust in God, and will not fear what flesh can do unto me.
5 Mine own words grieve me daily; all their thoughts are against me to do me hurt.
6 They gather together, and keep themselves close, they mark my steps, because they wait for my soul.
7 They think they shall escape by iniquity, O God, cast these people down in thine anger.
8 Thou hast counted my wanderings; put my tears into thy bottle; are they not in thy register?
9 When I cry, then mine enemies shall turn back; This I know, for God is with me.
10 I will rejoice in God because of his word, in the LORD will I rejoice because of his word.
11 In God do I trust, I will not be afraid what man can do unto me.
12 Thy vows are upon me, O God; I will render praises unto thee.
13 For thou hast delivered my soul from death, and also my feet from falling, that I may walk before God in the light of the living.
1 Corinthians 14:8
And also if the trumpet give an uncertain sound, who shall prepare himself to battle?
"Let not Geneva be forgotten or despised. Religious liberty owes it most respect." John Adams, the second president of the United States
Before, and many years after the KJV was printed, the GENEVA BIBLE was the People's Choice, but an ungodly King made it illegal to publish it any longer: http://www.reformedreader.org/gbn/igb.htmYahoo Group Owner
